More renovations occurring on this mine on the above date. This is a mammoth task and as many people as possible are invited to attend these working sessions. The objective is to clear passageways of deads, rebuilding walls and stone supports to make way for wooden supports. The conditions are a grubby red ocher, usual caving suit, furry maybe too warm, gloves ideal and wet wipes.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself last night, it is great fun restacking the deads neatly at the side of the passage and restoring the mine to more like its original look (whilst it was a mine - not its original original solid rock state). It is surprising how much the floor level has risen with fallen 'deads' and dirt. You can see through gaps that the pit props go down a further 18".
I even found three little artifacts which are going to the 'artifact display section'. Thereby increasing its contents from a just a rock and a tin can to; a rock, a tin can, and three nails.
